Masterclass with Morgan Doyle

Painterly Printmaking

Mono printing from metal - "The layering process which changes what we see, the very simple process of print and the complexity of art."

Master class with Morgan Doyle.

Assisted by Colin Gale director of Artichoke

Includes a final day criteria and discussion of the work produced.

It will be very much the way Morgan makes his work - a combination of techniques and layering which can include etching mono printing chine colle plus manual additions. The course is very much aimed at inspiring a free creative approach combining the advantages of painting and printmaking. We both have the view that many printmakers become trapped by techniques inhibiting their natural creative instincts, this course is designed to break past the technical barriers and work spontaneously and freely.

A two day course.

Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th March 2020 10.30 am - 4.30 pm Two day course

The two day etching course is designed to take you from idea to finished etching. This hands on short course will cover the basics of hard ground, soft ground and aquatint. With full explanations of each process and a sprinkling of print history, this course aims to demystify Etching, and show how, you too, can make great prints. 
This course is for you whether you have produced etchings before and need a refresher, to having never stepped foot in a print studio before! And if you fall in love with etching and wish to continue, there will be further opportunities to use the studio more independently, too.

Relief Printing Course

Lino and woodcut

What is it that makes one printing’s oldest processes still pertinent today?

Through a combination of group demos and one-on-one tutorials with award winning artist Jake Garfield, students will have the opportunity to explore the potential of lino and woodcut processes. All participants will be shown single-colour printing, multi-block printing and the reduction-cut (or ‘suicide’) method as they explore their chosen subject.

Inspiration will be drawn from the meticulous line-work of Durer to the raw energy of the German Expressionists as well as contemporary artists such as Tom Hammick, Grayson Perry and Christianne Baumgartner.
